The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BANGKOK: Thai­land yes­ter­day ruled out zika as the cause of two cases of microcephaly, a con­di­tion that re­sults in ba­bies be­ing born with small heads, but is in­ves­ti­gat­ing two other cases that could be the first linked to zika in South­east Asia. Thai health au­thor­i­ties said on Tues­day they were in­ves­ti­gat­ing four sus­pected cases in three ba­bies and a 36-week old un­born baby. “The test re­sults showed two did not have zika but it is still un­clear with the other two be­cause we found three fla­vivirus, which means it could be dengue, zika or menin­gi­tis,” a health of­fi­cial said. – Reuters
